Old drinks cans, crisp packets, discarded newspapers, all of which are spoiling the green open spaces of the estate behind Peckover House, will be finding their way to rubbish bins on Saturday.

Several local groups will be joining forces to pick litter from the estate, in a drive to clear away rubbish that has accumulated over the winter.

“If anyone has any spare time on Saturday April 9 between 10am and midday, we would be very grateful for their support,” said Jenny Windsor, National Trust gardener and event organiser.

“It doesn’t have to be for the full two hours; even 20 minutes would help.

“It’s surprising how much litter can be picked up in that time. In Wisbech we are fortunate to have such a wide, open green space at the centre of our town - a space that is enjoyed by so many people, so this is a good opportunity for us to get together and clean up this valuable asset.”

The National Trust, Street Pride, Wisbech in Bloom, sports clubs and neighbours will be teaming up to help make the estate, with its sports fields, paths and ancient trees, litter-free.

The litterpick group will meet in the car park of Chapel Road, where they’ll be provided with bin bags. Please bring gloves and suitable clothing.
